Yale University Launches Event To Help Illegal Immigrants Get Jobs
The event was Yale’s third annual Equity in the Job Search symposium
Yale University held an event on Friday aimed at assisting illegal immigrants finding jobs, according to reports.
All registered Yale students were eligible to attend the event.
According to one description of the event:
“The afternoon session will include a panel on building mentoring relationships for the job search, led by Mary Geary, past president of the Yale School of Nursing Alumni Association."
"The rest of the day will feature concurrent sessions, including panels and speakers on job searches for non-U.S. residents and undocumented individuals, avoiding gender bias in applications, and navigating the job search for academic and non-academic positions.”
The description continued:
“The symposium integrates practical career advice with data-driven discussions of gender bias to expand the conversation of gender bias to a larger population."
"One of the goals of the all-day event is to show that everyone benefits from more inclusivity.”
Ryan then noted, “Funding for the event has historically included support from Yale’s Title IX Office, its Office of Graduate Student Development and Diversity, and its Office of Career Strategy, as well as various science departments at the school."
According to another report from three experts associated with the Yale Scholl of Management last year, there almost three times as many illegal immigrants living in the United States than what the Government's official figures said.
The authors said there were 29.5 million illegal immigrants in the U.S, way more than the 11 million assumed to be here.
The authors wrote:
It is currently fairly widely accepted that there are approximately 11 million undocumented immigrants in the United States.
This estimate, derived from population surveys and legal immigration records, has formed the backdrop for the immigration policy debate in the United States.
Using a different approach grounded in operational data, and demographic and mathematical modeling, we have arrived at higher estimates of the undocumented immigrant population.
Our results lead us to the conclusion that the widely accepted estimate of 11.3 million undocumented immigrants in the United States is too small.
Our model estimates indicate that the true number is likely to be larger, with an estimated ninety-five percent probability interval ranging from 16.2 to 29.5 million undocumented immigrants.
The three authors were countered by the Center for Immigration Studies’ director of research, who said:
The findings are unsupportable. Accepting that there are 22 million illegal immigrants in the U.S. also requires accepting that every Census Bureau survey missed huge numbers of people and that most administrative data from the federal government is woefully incomplete.
There is no body of research that corroborates such a claim.
“No matter how carefully a theoretical model may seem to be calibrated, it is not useful unless it is consistent with the real world."
"It is incumbent upon the authors to explain how their estimate can be reconciled with other data. It seems extremely unlikely that the Census Bureau, the Department of Education, and other records of vital statistics miss so many people year after year."
